New Orleans.

A young gentleman who passed through this city yesterday from New Orleans, on his way to join the Washington Artillery, says that the yellow fever has already broken out among the Yankee troops, and that the Surgeons are forbidden, under pain of dismission, to report the cases as yellow fever. They report it as something else. Two thousand young men left the city at the same time with himself, most of whom went to General Johnston. He says there are not more than five hundred Yankee troops in the city. The St. Charles and all the other large hotels are occupied as hospitals, and crowded to overflowing. Boats crowded with wounded are continually arriving from Port Hudson. The Yankee role grows more intolerable every day.
